Sibulan police arrest
counterfeit bill seller


A man was arrested with 19 pieces of suspected fake P1,000 bills near the seaport in Sibulan town, Negros Oriental yesterday.

Sibulan police chief, Insp. Desiree Saguilabon, said that they arrested Bell Caballero Fuentes, 40, of Barangay Panadtaran in Argao, Cebu province, on the complaints of Paul John Villaflores, employee of Mister Doughnut.

Villaflores said Fuentes gave him P1,000 to pay for the one box of doughnuts worth P180, and discovered that the money was fake after giving the suspect his change of 820, the police said.

Suspected drug personality
shot dead, 2 others busted


A suspected drug personality was shot dead in Barangay Candauay, Dumaguete City, while two other suspected drug pushers were arrested in Amlan, all in Negros Oriental, Tuesday.

Carl Bryan Catan of San Jose Extension in Dumaguete City was shot by still unidentified suspects at around 3:45 p.m. in Candauay. He was rushed to the Negros Oriental Provincial Hospital but was declared dead on arrival by attending physicians, the police said.

A small weighing scale, several plastic sachets, a tooter and other alleged shabu paraphernalia were recovered by the police at the crime scene.

BIR to hold IECs
on revenue target

The Bureau of Internal Revenue has started on a massive information and education campaign, and is adopting measures to achieve the target revenues of district offices in 2014.

Carolina Carcullas, chief of the BIR Revenue District Office 79 based in Dumaguete City, said yesterday that this because of the failure of some district offices to meet tax collection goals last year.

She said the RDO-79, that covers the provinces of Negros Oriental and Siquijor, also likely failed its target but the final evaluation of the BIR Central Office is not finished yet.
